Educational Philosophy: The facilitators philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, special projects and writings. the facilitator will engage each learner in what is referrred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment tool that measures the degree to which students learn the course's learning outcomes. School policy dictates that a student's performance on the core assessment tool must count for at least 20% of the student's total course grade. For this course, the tool consists of the final exam. Therefore, the final exam mustcount for at least 20% of the student's total course grade (preferably, it will count for more). School policy dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes. To ensure compliance, al lCS 225 instructors are required to give the same final exam. See the attached final exam artifact and artifact solution. To prevent cheating, students are strictly forbidden from keeping the final exam, the solutions, or copies of either.
There are three categories ofquestions in the final exam:
(relevant learning outcomes – 4, 6, 9)
Given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).
Exam questions: 22
Total points: 15½
See the exam solution for details on how to score the questions.
(relevant learning outcomes – 1-3, 79)
Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 225 concepts.
Exam questions: 1-16
Total points: 16
(relevant learning outcomes – 9)
Short answer questions that ask the student to explain various concepts and trace and debug code fragments and/or programs.
Exam questions: 17-21
Total points: 12½
The ICS Program Coordinator will analyze core assessment results for 20% of all ICS courses offered. In analyzing the results, the ICS Program Coordinator will use the following grading rubric and compare results across all instructional modalities.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: A Mid Term Examination, A Comprehensive Final Exam, 6 or more quizzes, home work, and a special Project.
Grading weights are as follows: homework/quizzes 20% Laboratory special projects 10% Mid-Term 30% Final exam 40%
Your overall score is determined as follows: (your_total_hw-quizz_pts/max_hw-quizz_pts)*20+ (your_total_labwork_pts/max_lab_pts)*10 + (your_total_part_pts/max_part_pts)*5 + (your_total_mid-term exam_pts/max_mid-term exam_pts)*30 + (your_total_final exam_pts/max_final exam_pts)*40
Letter grades are assigned (based on your overall score) as follows: 90 - 100 A, 80 - 89 B, 70 - 79 C, 60 - 69 D, and Less than 60 F.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Homework must be turned in at the beginning of class on the day it is due. The due date will be annotated at the bottom of each assignment. Late homework will be accepted up to the start of the next class meeting but will incur a 7 point (out of 100) reduction in score each day it is late. Late homework will not be accepted after the start of the next class meeting and will receive an automatic zero for a grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
STUDENTS MUST READ ALL CHAPTERS PRIOR TO EACH SCHEDULED CLASS MEETING. Students are expected to be well-prepared to discuss examples and assignments provided at the end of each chapter or handed out by the instructor. Discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade. Students will also complete one Comprehensive assignment outside of class.
